"The Pioneer New Woman" was the title of a lecture delivered by "Eglwysbach" (Mrs. John Evans) at the Guildhall, Brecon, on Monday evening, in aid of the funds of the Dr. Coke Memorial (Wesleyan) Sunday School. Mrs. Sidney Robinson, Cardiff (wife of the Liberal candidate for Breconshire) presided, and was accorded a hearty reception. CARDIGAN An inquest was held at Aberayron by Dr. Abel Evans, Lampeter, on Tuesday last, on David Hughes, 47, tailor, Erw, Cilie Aeron, whose body was found floating with the tide in Aberayron Har- bour. There was no evidence as to how deceased was drowned, and the jury returned an open verdict. The monthly meeting of the South Cardiganshire Methodists' Association was held at New Quay, on Tuesday, presided over by Mr. T. Rowlands, Tyndolau, Llangeitho. It was resolved that the next meeting be held in the North District, and the Rev. W. Adams, B.A., Lampeter, and Mr. E. Ceredig Evans, J.P., Cardigan, were elected pre- sidents for the year 1906. CARNARVON. Mr. Harold Littler, a Rossall boy, and the eldest son of Mr. John Littler, of Llandudno, has just been awarded an exhibition at Magdalen College, Oxford, value ^50 a year for four years, and a scholarship at Jesus College, Oxford, value £ 80 a year for four years. He has accepted the latter. Before going to Rossall he spent seven years at the Llandudno County School under Mr. J. M. Archer Thompson, and he has now the distinction of having been awarded over £ 1,000 in scholarships and exhibitions. At the first meeting held in support of the candi- dature of Mr. Arthur Hughes in North Carnarvon- shire a letter from Lord Penrhyn was read to the effect that when he heard that a wish had been expressed that he should preside at the meeting he felt pleasure at the thought that his presence would be welcome there, and it was with great regret that he learnt that as a peer he was debarred from taking part in political meetings on the eve of an election. Otherwise he would have been most happy to do his utmost to support the candidature of Mr. Arthur Hughes, who represented a party whose policy meant improvement in trade by an alteration in our fiscal policy, and that grand bene- ficent object of bringing our colonies into closer union and harmony with the mother country. He wished the candidate every success. PUNT.) At the monthly meeting of the Vale of Clwyd Calvinistic Methodists held at Rhyl on the 28th ult., where representatives of 78 congregations, comprising a constituency of 13,086 people, were assembled, the tollowing resolution was unani- mously adopted :— That this meeting desires to place on record and announce that it deems it of the utmost importance that the Bible be read in all public and elementary schools in our land." The unusual scene was witnessed at the Board- room at St. Asaph Workhouse on Friday afternoon of the Guardians forsaking their business to listen to a new phonograph, which was a Christmas gift from a Rhyl gentleman. The first record placed on the machine was Where are the boys of the old brigade?" The Vice-Chairman (Mr. J. Frim- ston) thought the selection was a most appropriate one when they surveyed the many empty seats in the boardroom. Having had an English air, the Welsh members of the Board called for a Welsh one, and the Master had to hunt through the records before they could be pacified and the busi- ness of the Board proceeded with. At Friday's meeting of the Holywell Rural Dis- trict Council the clerk read correspondence which he had had with the Clerk of the County Education Authority with regard to the Talacre Roman Catholic School. Three months ago the schools were closed owing to an outbreak of scarlet fever, and they have not since been re-opened, nor have they been disinfected as required by the medical officer. The managers of the school have decided to hand them over to Sir Pyers Mostyn, as private
